Fried Liver Mayhem!!

Our opening theme Thursday night (6/13) will be "The Fried Liver Attack", also called the Fegatello Attack (named after an Italian idiom meaning "dead as a piece of liver"). This is one of the most aggressive chess openings and is a variation of the Two Knights Defense. After black moves 3...Nf6, white makes the aggressive move 4.Ng5!? and launches both players down a path leading to the crazy fried liver attack! Join us Thursday night for Fried Liver Mayhem and see what happens!!

We will be playing our normal 3 rounds of rated/unrated chess immediately following fried liver mayhem.

960 Chess Night!!

Our theme game this week will be "960 Chess" also known as "Fischer Random Chess". Players will be given a random starting position in which the pieces on the back rank will be shuffled. This chess variant was advocated by World Champion Bobby Fischer. The purpose was for players to have to rely on their talent and creativity as opposed to just memorizing opening lines. We hope to end up with a lot of exciting games!! Don’t worry if you’ve never played before. It is much like regular chess.

Following our 960 game, we will play 3 rounds of normal (quick) chess (rated and unrated).

Below is a primer on 960 chess from youtube.
